Sleep during transfers

My system is programmed to go into standby after a certain amount of inactivity time. During long transfers, WinSCP does not prevent the system from going into standby (especially when I am uploading - the slow speed implies very little CPU and disk utilization). The outcome is that long transfers are interrupted in the middle.

I think Windows has a standard API for letting a thread notify the system that it needs system resources and that the system should not be suspended. It would be helpful if there would be an option in WinSCP to do this during file transfers.

Thanks alot! WinSCP is a wonderful program!
